Thankfully, the giraffes remain.
The kids loved the giraffes because they still get to feed the giraffes. My oldest even wore her "giraffe dress" because she knew she would get to feed the giraffes. [A cup full of carrots costs 3.224 OMR according to our bank statement and is totally worth it, according to my kids].
On the bright side, he did seem to like the park, and all the fake water stuff.
Omani kids, I tell ya.
In Al Ain the next day we ate at this restaurant called "Moroccan Beauty". I ordered the "Barkook Tagine", and "Harira" soup, my husband ordered some chicken with cous-cous dish, and the kids had french fries. We also had mint tea, and I ordered a chicken pastry with cinnamon. My tagine was really, really delicious, and they served it with bread. As far as decor went, it was super basic, but the service was fine (I read some online reviews of the place and other people complain about the servers and the place being dirty) but our Filipino lady server and the Moroccan guys were totally fine. Because it was around 2 in the afternoon, this may be different than the typical evening experience, I dunno, but we ate inside, and loved our food. The barkook lamb tagine was divinely delicious, so I could forgive that the harira was kind of boring, and that the pastry was only decent. That's my review. I loved my tangine.
I can say, my Turkish coffee, and the Iranian sweets were good (and I usually hate Iranian sweets).

Just kidding. Well...kind of. I mostly tone down and restrain that part my personality for Oman, but back home, I am really not the weirdest, most dramatic person so....it's fine. So, I wore it to take my husband and sister to a garden back in the land far and away. Here is my purple abaya...and some of my garden photos.
